About the Australian Dollar

The Australian dollar is the currency of the Commonwealth of Australia as well as Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands and Norfolk Island. The Pacific Island states of Kiribati, Nauru and Tuvalu also officially use the Australian Dollar.

When introduced on 14 February 1966, the Australian dollar replaced the Australian pound (long since distinct from the pound sterling), and introduced a decimal system.

In 1988, Australia introduced its first polymer bank note and in 1996 became the first country in the world to have a complete series of polymer notes. This technology was developed by Australia. Australia prints polymer notes for a number of other countries.

The Australian dollar is currently the third most traded currency in the world of foreign exchange markets.

  • Within Australia the dollar is almost always abbreviated with an A$ or AU$.This is to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies.
  • Coins are issued in denominations of 5, 10, 20 and 50 cent and $1 and $2. Banknotes are issued in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100.
